We’re hosting comedy nights at both West Acton Villageworks and Twenty-Nine restaurant in Sudbury starting in September, Fugitive Comedy Night brings us some of the best comics the area has to offer. Order tickets now.

Headliner Kate Willett
Kate is a comedian, actress, and writer whose raunchy feminist storytelling is both smart and relatable. Her 15-minute special premiered on Netflix’s “Comedy Lineup” in 2018. She’s the cohost of the “Reply Guys” podcast. Kate has been a correspondent for “The Jim Jeffries Show” (now airing on Comedy Central), has been featured on Viceland’s “Flophouse,” and her appearance on Comedy Central’s “This is Not Happening” was on Splitsider’s list of “2016’s Best Late Night Standup Sets.” Kate toured with Margaret Cho nationally and internationally as well as many other A-list comics. She has appeared in the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, High Plains, Big Sky Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest (five years in a row), and most recently Laughing Skull. She was a “Comic to Watch” at the LA Riot festival. Her comedy album “Glass Gutter” was released in 2017.

Guest Host Bethany Van Delft
Bethany’s “hip & grounded, laid back delivery” has earned her the honor of performing at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and notable appearances on Comedy Central, TV Guide Channel, and NickMom. Her monthly show, “Artisanal Comedy,” has been named “one of the top indie nights to check out.” Unashamedly in touch with her inner nerd, Bethany enjoys being a panelist on “You’re the Expert” and “Literary Death Match,” and is thrilled to be Mainstage storyteller and host for The Moth.

Opener Kwasi Mensah
Kwasi bridges the gap between insightful observations about race and still thinking he could be a Power Ranger when he was 15. He’s opened for SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, Aparna Nancherla, and W. Kamau Bell. He also co-produces “Laughing Liberally Boston,” a show that combines comedy with progressive politics. He’s been featured in SF Sketchfest, the Boston Comedy Festival, The Comedy Exposition in Chicago, and recently recorded his first hour of stand up titled, “Not From Around Here.”

MAYNARD — The Love Dogs

Be among the first to dance the night away at “Sanctuary” in Maynard.

Full bar/lounge. Dinner delivered by several local restaurant partners.
See below for more information about this exciting new venue.

ABOUT THE BAND

Take a red-hot horn—down and dirty. Add liberal amounts of barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano and stinging Fender guitar. Pour over a funky and swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called “the best in the business,” and top it all off with a crazy and charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around. Season with a few years on the road, tearing up juke joints, festivals, and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic. Sound tasty? It’s a recipe for music and mayhem, for intensity and irreverence; it’s THE LOVE DOGS.

The Dogs combine elements of jump blues, New Orleans R&B and early rock ‘n’ roll into their own powerhouse sound. “It’s important to us to have fun, and sometimes even we don’t know what we’re gonna do next,” says lead vocalist and chief songwriter Eddie “Duato” Scheer. “We have a lot of humor in our music, and we love to surprise each other and make each other laugh.

“We’re all lifetime fans of blues, jazz, and R&B, and we have a real reverence for the music. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” The band’s lineup consists of Scheer, Alizon Lissance (keyboards, vocals), Myanna (alto/tenor sax, vocals), Glenn Shambroom (guitar, baritone sax), Randy Bramwell (bass, vocals), and Steve Brown (drums, vocals).

Blues Review notes: “If there was a Superbowl for crowd pleasing rhythm & blues, a photo of The Love Dogs would be on every Wheaties box in America.” Scheer sums it up by saying, “If this band doesn’t put a smile on your face, check your pulse because you just might be dead!”

Doors open at 7:30pm
$15/online • $18/door • Order your tickets here.
Presales end at 4pm on the day of the show.

ABOUT SANCTUARY, MAYNARD

Until then, Sanctuary has made arrangements with several local restaurant partners to service Fugitive events by delivering meals directly to the venue.

Headliner Myq Kaplan
Our headliner has been on all the "shows." He's got his own comedy specials. But, most important, he's just plain funny. Formerly a Boston boy, now a proud New Yorker, our headliner, Myq Kaplan has performed on the Tonight Show, Conan, the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Late Late Show with James Corden, in his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents special, and in his own one-hour special on Netflix and now Amazon, “Small, Dork, and Handsome.” He has been a finalist on Last Comic Standing and recently appeared on America’s Got Talent. His debut album “Vegan Mind Meld” was one of iTunes’ top 10 comedy albums of the year, and his most recent album "No Kidding" is one of the top billion albums of eternity.

Featuring Tooky Kavanaugh
With razor sharp wit and a charm once described as “ineffable,” Tooky (rhymes with cookie) Kavanagh speaks her mind with honesty, charisma, and edge. Tooky has performed in New York, Denver, and all over New England. Her standup credits include Laugh Boston, Nick’s Comedy Stop, December 2018 Comic in Residence at The Comedy Studio, The Rockwell Theater, The 2017 Women In Comedy Festival, Thunderfest 2017, The 2017 Boston Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Chicks, The 2017 Boston Comedy Arts Festival, The Producer’s Club, and Comic Sit-In at The Riot Theater. And she was selected to audition for the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. She can be seen regularly at venues such as The Comedy Studio, ImprovBoston, and Laugh Boston. (Also, she’s the one who described her own charm as “ineffable,” but it’s still true!)

Host Mike Dorval
After a mere three months of performing, Mike won the NH Comedy Festival, defeating some of New England’s most established comics and he quickly climbed the comedic ranks to become one of the youngest headliners in Boston history. He’s been praised by the Boston Globe as “One of Boston’s Best.” Mike has been featured on Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, starred in numerous TV commercials, and toured overseas for the USO. He has served as Comic In Residence at The Comedy Studio and is a favorite of the Boston Comedy Festival. He’s written and performed several one man shows which have had runs at the Charles Playhouse and Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater.

ABOUT TWENTY-NINE

Twenty-Nine offers simple, authentic rustic Mediterranean fare. They seek to redefine the suburban restaurant experience into one that is relaxed, cozy, and intimate — a place folks go to enjoy a great meal, great drink, and great company. They're fussy about simplicity — rustic fare that is reminiscent of the Western Mediterranean’s comfort food classics — bringing healthful, fresh, and vibrant flavors to your table. They draw inspiration from the coastal regions of Italy, France, Spain, and Greece, with just a touch of Morocco. Fugitive’s events take place in the ample second floor dining room which sports a big, beautiful bar, several comfy banquettes, as well as small tables and high-tops.

TONIGHT’S BAND

Composer, arranger, and keyboardist Molly Flannery is known for her distinctive touch on the piano, her melodic improvisations, and her ability to groove in jazz, latin, and Brazilian idioms. After studying composition, improvisation and theory at Yale, Molly began her performing career in Japan where she appeared frequently at local clubs. When she eventually settled in Boston, she studied jazz with Ran Blake, Charlie Banacos, Kenny Werner, Harvey Diamond, and Doug Johnson. Her CD releases include ”Slow Dance at the Asylum” and “Riding the Bull.” She continues to refine and strengthen her talents, playing in Boston and suburban venues such as the Bull Run Restaurant, Concord’s Colonial Inn, Orange Door Kitchen, Chelmsford Center for the Arts, Luna Theater . . . and now, Twenty-Nine.

Bass player Sven Larson is a Boston-based acoustic and electric bass player who has been performing professionally for a quarter century. Born in Ohio, Sven came to Boston in 1995 to study with the late Steve Neil. He continued to learn, perform and record in many genres, while becoming a popular bassist on the local jazz and blues scene. He has studied different styles of music, including Hindustani Classical music and African Drumming. Sven has played on many bandstands across the US, Canada, and Europe including Boston’s Symphony Hall, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, the King Biscuit Festival, and has performed with some of the region’s top players.

Vocalist Isabel Stover is a seasoned vocalist who entertains and inspires listeners by fearlessly deconstructing musical compositions to their emotional core. “Jazz is my go-to music; my comfort food,” says Isabel. “As vocal artists there is a need to bear our souls to the world, but at the same time make our music accessible to people.” Her mastery of rhythm, phrasing and spot-on intonation draws the emotive thread between timeless jazz standards, latin favorites, and classic blues. Her laid-back style, ability to connect with her audience, and unique repertoire provides a refreshingly different jazz showcase. And the critics say: “Isabel Stover is a fantastic talent in the classic tradition of Carmen McRae or Sarah Vaughan who puts on a heartfelt, warm and vibrant show packed to the gills with soul.” “Isabel Stover has sung in musical theater, funk, r&b, classical opera, and a jazz choir. She certainly brings out the full meaning of songs in her richly textured voice.” 

Trumpeter, vocalist, and arranger Anna Callahan swings in the tradition of Louis Armstrong and Chet Baker. She move to LA after college where she performed at area clubs such as Steamers, The Vic, Charlie O’s, Spazio, and the Four Points Sheraton Jazz Masters Series, among others. She as released two albums — “My Ideal” and  “It’s Just the Rain” which have been played on jazz stations around the country and internationally. Anna currently performs with The Fried Bananas, a band composed of lindy-hop dancers that performs swing and blues music. And the critics say: “Her music, whether played or sung, is straight from the heart — without any detours.” “If you love the great songs sung with warmth and panache, you will love Anna Callahan.”
